I think I found a solution, but wanted to check with the list to see if I am
I was poking around the excerpts and found that people were sending messages
to my list "resume at foo.bar" with addresses such as "resume at foo.bar;
resume at jobs.com; resume at frank.com; resume at blah.com; etc." What I did was go
into list admin and under privacy options, did the following:

Ceiling on acceptable number of recipients for a posting >>> 1

This was changed from the default of 10. Should this solve the problem?

When I saw this it was because of an To: header like this:

To: Friends <addr1; addr2; addr3; addr4; ... >

Where one of the addr's was the mailinglis address.

Hmm...perhaps there should be a "Don't warn on implicit addresses"
